Research Interests: Medical sociology, bioethics, public health, health inequities




I study the pathway from ethics to implementation in public health. I am interested in understanding how decisions made in allocating and prioritizing limited health resources can impact health inequities. My current research uses an interdisciplinary approach that includes interviews and critical discourse analysis to investigate different prioritization schemes of the COVID vaccine. 

I am also interested in feminist theory, specifically the politics and ethics of care.
